I was given a C11 by a friend who, due to age, was unable to use it any more. The scope was free to me but I was asked by my friend not to sell it until after he's gone. I have every intention of following his wishes.
I find that I will need to store the scope for at least the next couple of years and perhaps longer.
What advice can anyone give on how to store it. Horizontally? On end facing down? On end facing up? I'm thinking of potential lubricant leak/drip as well as dust. I will plug the open end, of course. Should I use a bag of dessicant? Scope will be stored in a plastic storage tub in my basement which is cool (65-70 year round) and reasonably dry..
Thanks for the wisdom,
